‘O magnum mysterium’
Wells Cathedral School’s Early Music Ensemble is pleased to present a concert of varied music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Enjoy a mixture of solo and small ensemble items, together with larger scale pieces in collaboration with the Brass and Vocal departments. Including works by Correlli, Handel, Palestrina, Schultz and Vejavanovsky.
Each year, in early January, the chairs are removed from the Nave of Wells Cathedral. This allows the congregation and visitors to appreciate the medieval Nave in its original state – without furniture.
During the annual Promenade Concerts, the audience can therefore walk around and enjoy not just the space in the Nave, but also the Quire, transepts and side chapels. Some choose to wander the building, whereas others will find a special and unique place to sit where they can enjoy the performance.
